“Pony and train rides for the kids were great!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Beautiful park even though the pony area was a bit stinky. They should clean up after the ponies right away to maybe lessen the smell. Beware of the bathrooms. Very dirty. Great deal on the pony rides ($3 for 2 laps). They have different levels (slow, medium, and fast) for different ages and heights. Watch out though because our girls only got one lap around. We were confused at first but when we inquired, found out it was supposed to be 2 laps. We were offered another ride but there was a line and we didn't want to wait. They did give us a card for a free ride for next time though. We went on a Friday and though it wasn't too crowded, there were a lot of people. We waited about 20 minutes for the medium ride. The other rides didn't have too many people waiting for it. Can't speak for a Saturday though. I did notice a snack bar which sold ice cream, drinks, and I think it had some food. Was feeling a little under the weather so I didn't check it out. Maybe next time. Definitely go and take the kids.

“Hike Up!”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

I personally enjoy hiking up this instead of driving to the observatory. It is a wonderful view of Los Angeles

“View the "HOLLYWOOD" Sign, with Caution!”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

We only stopped to view the "Hollywood" sign. It was difficult finding a place to park as the place is a magnet for Sign Looking. I almost got a parking ticket from the park ranger because I unknowingly was parked at a red curb zone. Luckily we only stopped for a quick look and picture and he let me leave without issuing a ticket.

“Very pretty area”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Beautiful park and green space in the midst of dirty city. We drove through this on a tour and while it was pretty, can't say it would be worth visiting otherwise.
